Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Killer Mushroom Cream




Instant Pot White Chicken Chili from Sweet and Savory Meals was my first recipe made in my new Instant Pot.  It was a huge success both in preparation and taste! I added extra corn plus a can of creamed corn for even more goodness

You can make this in a slow cooker too or stove top, directions included in the post
